No one wants to think about emails, meetings and deadlines during or right after a break, but going back to work is inevitable. And with a little planning and some solid ground rules you can ensure work doesn’t pile up in your mind or on your desk while on vacation so you’ll be able to survive your first days back without having a mental burnout.
So great to hear over 60% of you is happy to be back at work. However, over 25% of you dread returning to work after a well-deserved break, and almost 14?el like they need a vacation from their vacation. That’s actually pretty bad. Feeling a little wistful is normal, but if it feels more like intense dread you better ask yourself if your work isn’t the problem.

How are work outcomes affected by the treatment of those who do it? I have been exploring this question for ~50 years. In that time, one comment stuck with me more than any other. It was made in 1998 when I interviewed a group of men in Indianapolis who had redesigned most of the US city’s waste collection and disposal operations. “We are no longer expected to park our brains at the door when we come to work.”
